About Us

Established over a century ago, Deutsches Altenheim was originally designed to serve as a retirement residence for elderly German Americans. Today, the caring and committed staff continues to serve elders who are in need of full range senior care services for those who value excellence in elder care.

Founded in 1914, Deutsches Altenheim was established as a not-for-profit senior living community. The retirement village and senior care home of Deutsches Altenheim was created to offer quality senior care for elders, and in the years after opening, the elder care center became a centerpiece of the community.

Through the continued generosity of supporters, Deutsches Altenheim remains a pillar of the Greater Boston community and continues to offer superior senior care in a trusting and experienced environment. Today, Deutsches Altenheim offers our residents long term care, post-acute rehabilitation and outpatient rehabilitation, memory care, adult day health services and assisted living opportunities.

With dignity and compassion, we welcome individuals of all nationalities, races and religions to become part of our community.


501c(3) Public Charity, Deutsches Altenheim, Inc. is under the direction of a Board of Trustees elected from membership in the German Ladies Aid Society of Boston.
